East Bengal tied up with ‘Shree Cement’ as their sponsor. Last week they registered the name of ‘Shree Cement’ as the franchise name to pick up the bid papers.
Earlier this month, FSDL had invited clubs to submit bid papers from Kolkata, Ahmedabad, Delhi, Ludhiana, Siliguri, and Bhopal to participate in the league for the last one spot this season.
According to reports, this was just the official process to include the Kolkata giant to the league and it was pretty evident that East Bengal FC will be that 11th team of ISL.
This will be the 7th edition of ISL this season. In these 7 seasons, this is the first time there will be two teams from a single city if East Bengal finally joins the league (which is almost sure).
Other Kolkata giant Mohun Bagan FC has already merged with defending champion ATK and will play in ISL this season as ATK Mohun Bagan FC. The addition of both the rival teams will surely increase the excitement level of the league. Now ISL can also witness the legendary rivalry of Mohun Bagan and East Bengal.
